Mission of Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Michigan Association (FAAMA)
FAAMA is a professional association with a primary purpose to share expertise and partner with fellow healthcare professionals working with the food allergy patient population. Conferences, selected resources, referrals and collaborative initiatives are shared with healthcare colleagues to assist in professional endeavors which impact patients with IgE mediated food allergy at risk for anaphylaxis. FAAMA also provides resources and evidenced-based general information to school staff and families and collaborates with legislators on food allergy related health policy efforts. FAAMA also aims to advance formal health education on IgE mediated food allergy and anaphylaxis and assist with food allergy research. FAAMA was founded in February 2015.
Four Primary Objectives of FAAMA
Provide formal professional evidenced based health education on IgE mediated food allergy/anaphylaxis.
